Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In America - November 2013

2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid
YOY, Ford C-Max Sales Were Chopped In Half In November
General Motors has thankfully introduced the new Chevrolet Colorado, a successor to the forever-outgoing Colorado, which succeeded the S-10. In the meantime, Chevrolet dealers have been slowly getting rid of the first Colorado and its twin, the GMC Canyon. 

Fewer than 300 Colorados have been sold in each of the last seven months. Fewer than 100 Canyons have been sold in each of the last eight months. Of course, there haven't been many to buy, but their joint hiatus has led to their status as two of the worst-selling vehicles in America on both a percentage decline and volume basis.

GCBC made changes to America's worst-selling vehicles list last month in order to avoid arbitrary price distinctions, intended sales volumes, and production delays and departures. This means vehicles like the Colorado and Canyon are eligible for this list despite the fact that they're not actually being rejected by buyers. They were rejected, but now they're just widely unavailable. 


There are continuing vehicles shown in the tables below, however. Consider the very rare - rarer this November than last - Mitsubishi i MiEV, Scion iQ, Nissan Cube, and Kia Sedona. 19 vehicles sold less often than the Jaguar F-Type last month, ten sold less often than the Audi R8, five sold less often than the cancelled Volvo C30.

You can always select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page to find historical monthly and yearly sales figures from both Canada and the United States. Pertinent links are clickable at the bottom of this post, but you can also find related links at the Best Sellers page.
